Connect UPS with two data links

This was originally posted on APC forums on 8/7/2020


I'm a new member and I greet all the users of the forum. I use in my network Ups BE700G-IT and I wonder if it is possible and how to connect data link port to 2 device (nas and pc)

Hi Marcello,

Unfortunately, this is also not supported, those units only have one USB port that can only be connected to one computer at a time.

To shutdown more than one device you would either need a Smart-UPS with Powerchute Business edition then use a script to shutdown multiple devices or a Smart-UPS with a network card and use Powerchute network edition.

Hi Marcello,

I don't believe it has this option but we do have a range of standalone network surge protectors:

thank you for your reply and I apologize that my post was incomplete. I would like that in the event of a power failure two device, and not only one, could be shut down (nas and pc). Now data link port is connected only to nas because Ups has only one port.
